When I turn on my MSI M510C notebook - ''reboot and select proper

When I turn on my MSI M510C notebook - I get this message ''reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key'' and cannot do anything else. I have tried using the recovery disks and everything, but can't get past this message. Laptop just stays on this screen and doesn't seem to recognise anything I put in the CD/DVD slot. Can someone tell me how to fix this?

Your notebook does not see the proper boot files on your C drive. Many times the boot.ini has been corrupted.
You will need a Windows XP Install CD mounted in the CD Rom. When you boot the system you need to choose the CD as the boot device (if the notebbok does not do it by default) then typr R to enter the recovery console. Once you get the C: prompt you will need to create a new boot.ini file using the bootcfg command. See the following website for details in using the Recovery Console:

Go to

and after selecting your Windows, download the drivers for your notebook.
Alternatively, clean the CD in + way. Means, up-down and right-left way and not circular we mostly do. Clean it with a soft cloth.

I've read this problem due to new hardware interferences with desktop computers, all they had to do is change a few pins around on the harddrives.. since this is a laptop, and is quite difficult and dodgy to access the hardware, the only other suggestion is to reinstall windows with a recovery disk, or windows CD-ROM.

Hope this helps :)

USB Mouse does not work. Computer recognizes the device but pointer does not work.


Hii, you please check that usb mouse in another machine and if its working good then you need to install a driver from your motherboard cd or from the msi website.
